    If I were you I would hold on to him. Zito is the type of pitcher that always starts off slow and then heats up as the season goes along. Lots of quality pitchers are struggling to get wins right now, just look at Johan Santana. His record is 6-6 right now. Do you think owners are going to drop him? Give him a few more starts and if he continues to lose, then it may be time to look elsewhere. I have him in one of my leagues as well, so you better believe I will be keeping a close eye on his next couple of starts.

    usually i would stick with some1 like zito and he has a 1.50 era in his last 5 starts but wakefield is having an unbelevible year

    Pick up Homer Baily that is for sure and probably wakefield.

    But yeah Zito looks bad this year

    Drop Zito and pick Suppan, b/c he has good recor and offense to back im up.

    Hmmm. I would hold onto him one more start and see how he does. If he gets the win in a close game, throw him out and get el duque. Or try trading him to someone who only plays fantasy to get attention.
